Aging adults are the common victims who undergo the suffering shoulder impingement syndrome. The bones in the shoulder joint have a narrow space between them. Certain factors results in lack in this space and cause the tendons to become compressed and this gives rise to the condition of shoulder impingement syndrome ( repetitive movement which can cause tendonitis). If this rotator cuff near the shoulder joint becomes inflamed, then due to not having enough space, it may get squeezed and create what is known as the shoulder impingement syndrome. Factors such as acute trauma to the shoulders, repeated overhead work, repeated weightlifting or throwing, prolonged static arm positions and lying on the same arm, each night while sleeping. Following is about the different symptoms of this medical condition.
Massage therapy also helps to reduce tension in the effected rotator cuff due to guarding and lack of range of motion. By using techniques like friction, joint mobilization, active and passive range of motion, massage therapist can break down scar tissue and prevent musculotendon atrophy that can lead to reduced range of motion of the effected rotator cuff.
Massage therapist can also give you a correct home care and hydrotherapy and proper activities so it can help to speed up healing and getting a client back to their active life style.
